  • Can I travel out of the state of Colorado while on probation for a second misdemeanor DWAI?

    I have not meet with my probation officer yet, at all. I have attempted to contact the PO several times and no response. I had booked flights prior to my sentencing and need to book future flights asap if travel is permitted. thank you for your time.

    Jeri’s Answer

    If you have not yet been sentenced, then you are probably on bond which would, in all likelihood, prohibit out of state travel without court permission. I would suggest you consider hiring an attorney to represent you. If that is not possible, you should ask the Court for permission to travel out of state. You should definitely NOT travel out of state without that permission.

    You may luck out if you sat out the entire year of your revocation; however, you would be wise to hire an attorney if you have not already to help you deal with the DMV. The revocation for the refusal is most likely completely separate from your court case and any consequences that can flow from it but this is nothing to mess around with. I suggest you hire an attorney to figure out your status and help you with the reinstatement process.

    I'm on the felony drug court board in Summit County and I imagine yours works the same as ours - testing is at a designated spot or perhaps spots in the front range but you can only test where it is approved. There is a method to the drug court madness but it is not for everyone. It is a great opportunity though to change your life so hopefully you can get comfortable with the new place. It is a different approach then Pretrial Services and usually there are no terms that are negotiable. Good luck.

    As Mr. Buckley said, you could be facing separate sentencing on those counts depending on what the prosecutor can prove. you should hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. do not mess around with this yourself. it is serious.

    I agree with Chris. You need to hire an attorney. The consequences of these cases are far reaching and last for a long time so don't mess around with this, hire an attorney.

    His mandatory release date should never change. That is the calculation of all his time but his parole eligibility date and estimated parole date will change.

    Contributing to the delinquency of a minor is not a charge that can be brought in municipal court so you are not being charged with a felony if you are in municipal court.

    Jeri’s Answer

    Your probation officer can ask the court for a warrant when they file a probation complaint. I believe that court records for the City and County of Denver are available for free online. You can try and check that way.

    Most likely it will show up. It is routine to run a nationwide criminal history check on defendants in Colorado.
